    Pros

    LOTS and LOTS of overtime.

    Cons

    LOTS of overtime. Incompetent management. No raises because the managers are too lazy to do your yearly review. Don't bother working your butt off because you will never get promoted. No matter how much experience you have, management will just be lazy and give a promotion to anyone they like, no matter how incompetent the person is.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Stop promoting people with no leadership skills and are lazy. Hire more people so we don't have to work 12 plus hours every single day. Don't reward us with dinner that you cooked, only to have raw hot dogs and hamburgers. Stop sitting around talking. Communicate more. If you say you're going to do something, do it. Your workers are at their wits end and about to go on strike.

    I have been working at Owens & Minor full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. Good health insurance, steady work.

    Cons

    Stressful, overworked, so many projects and initiatives to work on daily along with daily tasks, it's mind boggling. Work tons of late nights and weekends to keep up without a thank you or pay to commensurate even when running circles amongst by peers.

    Advice to Management

    Give back to the little people. Stop handing out bonuses to everyone at the top (managers and above). Give back extra to the people that actually run your company. The amount of bonuses you dispense is sickening and undeserving of those receiving them. "Lets pay McKinsey millions of dollars for RBT and then give everyone at the top disgusting amount of bonuses" it's just wrong while portraying how broke the company is to anyone that asks for a raise as piddly as $5,000. "No we can't do that but we can give people af the top $50,000 bonuses for nothing". Culture is completely dead. It used to be a fascinating culture that really cared about everyone. Now they only care about their stock which has plummeted.

    Job security, great teammates. Decent benefits and PTO is good. The local management really cares about teammate well being and happiness

    I worked at Owens & Minor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This used to be a nice place but NO more. But there are a few nice people left in the organization but very few. All depends on your department.

    Cons

    Teammates that are slackers and incompetent are paid high salaries and those that work hard are always at the bottom of the pay scale. Even after the recent layoff, there are plenty of lazy people still around and of course they are the ones with the worst attitudes. And lets not forget that the company is extremely TOP heavy. Had a layoff and at the same time hire several new VPs. For what?

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO! Actually get one this time with some brains. He is the absolute worst! The board of directors should be ashamed!

    Pros

    Good friendly teamwork inspired atmosphere. Good hours. No weekends unless it's an emergency.

    Cons

    Being overworked for non competitive pay.
    Everyone is not treated equally for equal tasks and work.

    Business as usual environment. You are put wherever you're needed whenever they want at times.
    The hardest workers and departments make less money.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent to the "little people".
    Give back to your workers every now and then. Show them you care.
    Do more thorough background checks.
